While you're fixing the DTD, there are a couple of problems with the entity
files.  In particular:

<!ENTITY lt               "&#x26;&#x0003C;" ><!--=less-than sign R: -->
<!ENTITY amp              "&#x26;&#x00026;" ><!--=ampersand -->

in isonum.ent are both wrong; they should read

<!ENTITY lt               "&#x26;#x0003C;" ><!--=less-than sign R: -->
<!ENTITY amp              "&#x26;#x00026;" ><!--=ampersand -->

I suspect that most XML processors treat these entities as "already defined"
(implicitly) and ignore the new definitions; libxml2 allows an explicit
definition and then complains when either one of these is used.

Cheers,
